The US panel is formed by industry experts, which may include professors, translators, agents, librarians, authors, editors and publishers. Sometimes the panelists change, allowing more professionals to participate in this project. Our panel of experts meets twice a year for each edition, and their decisions are based on their knowledge of the market, their experience and the readers’ reports commissioned by this office to readers selected beforehand. Members of the panel reach their decision with absolute independence.

Andrea Montejo, Founder of the Indent Literary Agency, where she represents Spanish, Portuguese and English-language authors throughout the world.
Chad Post, Director of Open Letter Books and Managing Editor of Three Percent.
Esther Allen, translator from Spanish and French, Associate Professor at Baruch College, City University of New York.
Javier Molea, Foreign Languages Manager at McNally Jackson Books in Soho, New York.
